Sexual Health Q & A
What are common sexual health issues?
Up to 70% of intimate couples have a sex-related problem at least once during their relationship. Some of the most common sexual health issues include:
- Libido loss
- Erectile dysfunction
- Decrease female arousal
- Painful sex
- Delayed or absent orgasm
- Premature ejaculation
Many physical and psychological problems can disrupt the sexual response cycle. For example, high blood pressure is a prevalent contributing factor to erectile dysfunction.
When should I talk to a doctor about my sexual health?
Almost everyone has an occasional issue with sex, ranging from a temporarily reduced libido to erectile dysfunction or failure to orgasm. Stress, overeating, and other issues can get in the way of your sex life but typically resolve quickly.
You should make an appointment with Dr. Durrani if you have sustained sexual health issues that affect your quality of life in any way — from your intimacy with your partner to your self-confidence.
Dr. Durrani understands that sexual health issues are personal and sensitive. He provides a compassionate and confidential place to talk about your concerns and develops a customized treatment plan developed specifically for you.
How are sexual health issues diagnosed?
After reviewing your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history, Dr. Durrani completes a physical exam. He also uses blood tests and urinalysis to check for underlying health issues that could affect your sexual health.
In some cases, he might use ultrasound or other diagnostic imaging tests to collect more information about your symptoms.
